The following statement is to clarify ISAF's position in respect of kites and the outright World Sailing Speed Record - 500 metre course.
At the ISAF Executive Committee meeting of 5-7 February 2005, ISAF considered a request from the World Sailing Speed Record Council

(WSSR) on whether a 'kite' could establish and claim the outright World Sailing Speed Record. The position of ISAF is that, at this stage, a claim on the outright World Sailing Speed Record by a kite would not be endorsed.

Kite records will continue to be ratified by the WSSR Council in sail area divisions and kite speed sailing events will be observed and monitored as normal. Kite records have their own section on the WSSR website www.sailspeedrecords.com/kitesailing.html

To clarify the WSSR Council position concerning kite surfing, WSSR Rule 2 states that, in addition to the World Sailing Speed Record (the outright record), records can be established in the following sail area divisions: 10sq.m, A Class, B Class, C Class, D Class, and a division for sailboards with kite sails.

ISAF recognizes the World Sailing Speed Record Council as the international authority responsible for ratifying World Sailing Speed Records.
